Customer Practices Commentary

When called out for the appropriative nature of El Paso, they were no responsive to the concerns being raised.

Culturally Appropriative Designs
Resolutions to Appropriation

El Paso featured white presenting models dressed in "Southwestern" style clothing and head circlets and feathers wearing a woven wrap with the profile of an indigenous man in a headress. The wrap also features chevron patterns featured in art characteristic of indigenous art. El Paso along with Dakar, Marrakesh, Masai are all still for sale on the Hoppediz website.

Hopp-Tye Wrap Conversion Mei Tai Agadir features a large profile of an indigenous man in war bonnet on the panel of the carrier.

Hopp-tye Wrap Conversion Mei Tai Dakar features African Tribal design over the straps and carrier body.
